Minn Kota tension adjustment

Post by idruthrbfishin »

Question on a Minn Kota Maxxum 24v. 74# thrust. It turns way too easy. I tried tightening it up using the adjustment screw on the foot pedal, it's tightened up all the way and it still whips from left to right and vice versa way too easily. Not sure if the cables are stretched or what exactly is going on here. Would like to correct the problem and not react to the symptom, but I did think about just popping one of those Troll Perfect things on it. What the heck, I've spent $30 on a lot worse things LoL.
